Wegmans goes cold turkey on tobacco sales

The company said that until February 10, only remaining inventory will be available for sale; no new product will be ordered.


Explaining the decision ceo Danny Wegman said, “As a company, we respect a person’s right to smoke, but we also understand the destructive role smoking plays in health.”
